Help with GetResponse custom form

by Kurt
36 replies
I want to create a custom form to use with Getresponse. All of their forms are verticle:
name
email
submit button

...and I want some forms that are horizontal:

name email submit button


Plus, their forms load too slowly.

Anyone know the html/cgi for creating your own forms, including the parameters? If so, can you post a sample here?

Yes, I know to ask at Getresponse. However, I believe this may be of interest to a number of Warriors.


Thanks...

    I would also be interested in knowing this.

    I contacted GetResponse and they just said the forms couldn't be horizontal. A work around would be very helpful.

    What I do with Awber is take the input codes and put them together with a forum I like.

    I dont know if this will work with Getresponse but if you can get the input codes find a forum you like and use that for now tell you find a real solution.

    Option 1. Use the online creator. You can make it verticle or whatever. Just edit it in the designer.

    Option 2. Use the code below.

    Code:
    <form action="http://www.getresponse.com/cgi-bin/add.cgi"
    method="post" accept-charset="UTF-8">
    <input type="text" name="subscriber_email" size="14"/>
    <input type="text" name="subscriber_name" size="14"
    value="Subscriber"/>
    <input type="submit" value="Subscribe" />
    <input type="hidden" name="campaign_name" value="" />
    <input type="hidden" name="confirmation" value="" />
    <input type="hidden" name="getpostdata" value="get" />
    </form>

      <input type="submit" value="Subscribe" />
      <input type="hidden" name="campaign_name" value="" />
      <input type="hidden" name="confirmation" value="" />
      <input type="hidden" name="getpostdata" value="get" />
      </form>
      Thanks Garrie...But two problems:

      1. No, you can't edit it to be horizontal in the online editor.

      2. The cgi you posted doesn't work. I used the campaign number for the "campaign_name" attribute. But there's no "confirmation" value created online.

      I'm guessing this is older code that doesn't work with Getresponse's updates?

      <input type="hidden" name="confirmation" value="" />
      <input type="hidden" name="getpostdata" value="get" />
      </form>
      this works very well for me. It is so easy to implement! my account was closed by aweber and I am looking at getresponse after that. I am happy to know this is so much easier to use and less intimidating because with aweber you do not know when they will close your account without telling you!

      Hi Garrie,

      Just been browsing this thread and appreciate your contributions.

      I have been struggling to track url parameters using GetResponse in a wp squeeze page and have not had much luck.

      referrer url is in the form mydomain.com/?utm_campaign=test

      When I generate form code there is reams of it.

      When I use just the simple code suggested above I get an error message;

      "http://app.getresponse.com/static_notification_messages.html?type=not-active".

      Do I need to add the code into my getresponse code somewhere or use this code instead?

      If I want to also capture Get Response "Ref" field should I use the more detailed code? If so, how do I use "category1", 2 and 3? These don't appear in my GetResponse account?

      I don't need horizonatal forms - just want the tracking to work!

      Would welcome any input.

      Stay Lucky!/

        You could use a table (easiest way) like:

        Code:
        <TABLE BORDER="0" CELLSPACING="0" CELLPADDING="0" ALIGN="Center">
            <TR>
              <TD>
        Put your form code here.
        </TD>
            </TR>
          </TABLE>
        </CENTER>

    Change:
    <input type="hidden" name="getpostdata" value="get" />
    to:
    <input type="hidden" name="getpostdata" value="post" />

    If you want to post the info when passed to your pages instead of using _GET. Leave them off to not use any.

      I think this is the problem...I just got this account a few weeks ago. I don't have campaign names, only numbers. I'm guessing you have some forms "grandfathered in".

      This is my entire code generated by my online form maker:
      <script type="text/javascript" src="http://app.getresponse.com/view_webf...6521"></script>



      Thanks for your help, but I have a feeling we have two different capabilities, so much for "progress".

    This is the code I put in to any forum template. I didn't change any thing other then taking out the value of my info.
    I past the code in to any template and that template will work with my auto responder. I don't know if that's what your looking for but if you all ready have a template, just adding the inputs for your auto responder should work.

    <input type="hidden" name="meta_web_form_id" value="" />
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_split_id" value="" />
    <input type="hidden" name="listname" value="" />

    Another one that GR support sent me is:

      Actually, I think I got this one to work...

      Here's how:

      Code:
       
       <form action="http://www.getresponse.com/add_contact_webform.html"
      method="post">
      Name :<input name="name" type="text"/>
      Email :<input name="email" type="text"/>
      <input type="hidden" name="webform_id"
      value="123456"/>
      <input type="submit" />
      </form>

      Change the numbers in red to the campaign number.

      Thanks for your patience and perseverance...

    You have campain names. They are listed in the pull-down box at the top right. It says "Your current campaign:"

    The JS you have, can be changed to code if you disable the FaceBook opt-in option and chose "full code"

    It will give most of the code but still leave some in a JS.

    That ONLY works if you make a webform each time. Its also a webform # not a campaign #. If you make another form, it will have a different number.

    The first two codes I posted don't require that a webform be created for the campaign.

      ...Except, I couldn't get the first two to work.

      At this point, I'll create the web forms. It will probably take less time than to find a fix for the other forms, assuming I do find a fix.

    If you want it to be horizontal all you have to do is to style your <input> fields and make your optin div bigger so it can fit ... Go to your autoresponder account create a form, copy the html form code here without the css (styles) and I can help you ..

    This thread was helpful, but needs some updating. I hacked away between this thread and GR's actual form code and came up with a perfectly, easy solution.

    Here's the form code you need:

    Code:
    <form action="https://app.getresponse.com/add_contact_webform.html"
    method="post" accept-charset="UTF-8">
    <input name="email" type="text" placeholder="Enter Your Email" size="14"/><br />
    <input type="submit" value="" />
    <input type="hidden" name="webform_id" value="YOUR WEBFORM ID" />
    </form>
    For this code you just need to create a webform in GR (styling does not matter at all).

    Paste the above code into your page and replace the text "YOUR WEBFORM ID" with the web form ID of the form you just created in GR.

    If you want to grab their name as well you can add:
    Code:
    <input name="name" type="text" placeholder="Enter Your Name" size="14"/>
    Put that right above the input name="email" tag (again, only if you want to grab the subscribers name as well as their email.

    For some customization.. first off the "placeholder" (placeholder="Enter Your Email") is what will show up in the form field and when they start typing in the box, that text will automatically disappear so they don't have to delete the preset text.

    Also, for some CSS beautification you can play around with this code to get your desired results:

    Code:
    input[type="text"] { /*text boxes styling */
    	width:320px;
    	height:40px;
    	border-radius:5px;  /* changes how round the corners are */
    	border: solid 1px #ccc;
    	background-color: #e5e5e5;
    	box-shadow: inset 0 0 5px 3px #dfdfdf; /* this gives it a gradient shadow inside the box to look pretty. change inset to outset if you want a drop shadow instead of an inner shadow */
    	-moz-box-shadow: inset 0 0 5px 3px #dfdfdf;
    	-webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 0 5px 3px #dfdfdf;
    	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    	font-size: 16px;
    	font-weight: bold;
    	color: #999;

      Here's the form code you need:

      Code:
      <form action="https://app.getresponse.com/add_contact_webform.html"
      method="post" accept-charset="UTF-8">
      <input name="email" type="text" placeholder="Enter Your Email" size="14"/><br />
      <input type="submit" value="" />
      <input type="hidden" name="webform_id" value="YOUR WEBFORM ID" />
      </form>
      This helped me a TON...thanks.

    THIS IS GREAT!
    Helped me so much.

    Now i need to create a simple popup on my landing page with the form in it.
    IMPORTANT: The popup need to stay always in the center of the oage even if I resize the windows.
    Do you have any code?

      take the html code from getresponse

      then

      All needed is to make a table with 2 columns in html
      between the <form> </form> tags


      in the left one put the email field
      <input type="email" ....>

      in the right one put the button
      <input type="submit" ...>
